My passion for protecting the environment is reflected in my workshop practice
My Ethical Processes
Along with ensuring the materials I use are fairly and ethically sourced or 100% recycled, I use a 100% renewable, green energy tariff for all the workshop and office’s energy needs.
In my workshop, I use simple tools and traditional techniques, including a lot of elbow grease!
None of the disposables I use in the business such as metal polishing compounds contain animal products and since Febrary 2018 I’ve not bought any equipment (or food!) that contains any animal products at all (many traditional tools contain leather and many compounds contain animal fats).
The office and workshop are also 100% vegan.
UTILISING UK SKILLS
For processes that I outsource, I pay UK contractors, such as setters, casters, fabricators and finishers a fair price for their highly skilled work.
